Modifications that I did to the original pattern:
1. I did the yoke in st st except for the initial border and 3 rows around the eyelet increase, which I did in garter st.
2. Full-length sleeves and sleeve shaping by decreasing sts at every 9th row.
Now I have to work on my crochet cardigan which is almost half done. Now that I have only two WIPs, I might cast on some more. Ideas are swimming around in my head, but nothing definite.
And another wonderful news, I won some malabrigo and addi circ needles in a contest at a friend's blog. I have never worked with this yarn nor the needles so I am pretty excited!

This was also the first time I knit publically (We were in our own car but still there were a lot of cars around)...yes first time evvverr!!!!
Sadly it was a short drive so I could knit only one and a half pattern repeats on my February sewater. Also, no repeat public appearance is likely in the near future because I mostly travel with my kids and that makes even the thought of car-knitting hazardous.
Anyway, the body is all done. I will be working on the sleeves tomorrow, inshallah.

I have been slowly making progress on the sweater for my mom. I have knit nine lace pattern repeats so far and it is almost down to the waist.
I am also warming up to the idea of knitting(or crochet?) a bag, as it has been a while since I made one, lol.
